    Wow, there's a lot going on here. Will the IRS take your house if you bring the loan current? I doubt it. The reason is that the IRS then has to sell the house and spend time, money, and effort to dispose of property. I assume your name is on the deed? How did the house become part of his business so that the IRS could put a lien on it? Will the mortgage company let you bring the loan current? How much is the tax debt? So many questions.....It would be worthwhile to consider whether...

  2. Do I need a business license?

    Yes. You should get a business license. See -- http://www.cedarcity.org/?nid=550 Register with the state, and also get a city license. You probably need to get a sales tax ID too, and file sales tax returns as well. See -- http://tax.utah.gov/sales Depending on your circumstances, there could be more compliance required. My suggestion is to find a sharp local accountant who works with small businesses, and spend an hour talking about your tax filing obligations. I will be glad...

    There are some restrictions that could apply if you are under 16 years of age, but otherwise, yes, it is legal. You can also quit and get another job that fits your schedule.

    Has the IRS already sent you any letter or notices of audit? It does not sound like it, which can help your situation (trying to get things right before they audit you). 1 - In my view, you should deal with the IRS first. Utah income taxes are based on your federal taxes, and I think you should start with federal. 2 - IRS payment plans vary, but I would expect for the amount you say you owe, that you could get 3-5 years to pay. 3 - You *could* be audited and I am sure your late filed...

  5. Three day cancellation on purchases on contract

    Utah's law favors contracts, and there are few circumstances that provide for a time to rescind or cancel a purchase on contract (e.g., home solicitation sales under Utah Code 70C-5-102, telphone solicitations under 13-26-5, or health spa services under 13-23-4.). You may be thinking of the FTC's 3-day cooling off rule. See -- http://ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/products/pro03.shtm Depending on your circumstances (i.e., if you wish to cancel a purchase), you might be able to get help...

    You have the right to divorce him, and to move on with your life. You also have the right to do nothing if you wish. If you had children with him, then the issues and answers are more complicated. If you want alimony, you can ask for it, but the chances of getting it are impossible to evaluate from your post. In essence, the question is open-ended. You need to make some decisions about what you want to do. I suggest you find a local family law attorney and talk through your options in...

    You can try the IRS Taxpayer Assistance Center in your area. See -- http://www.irs.gov/localcontacts/index.html You can try a Low Income Taxpayer Clinic in your area. See -- http://www.irs.gov/advocate/article/0,,id=106991,00.html You may need more assistance than simply filling in the form. You might be able to get some pro bono support through the state bar association or a local bar association. See -- http://www.texasbar.com/AM/Template.cfm?Section=Can_t_Afford_a_Lawyer_&...

    As Attorney Malek suggests, the first thing to do is to see if you can stop or reverse payment. If you paid by credit card, start with a formal dispute of the charge. The card company will investigate, and that by itself may resolve the situation. If you paid by check or debit, then you may have a tougher time. You can file a BBB complaint, but there are plenty of companies that do not care about that. You may get an appropriate response by writing a letter demanding either the company...
